I have a little friend (my close friend’s son) who was in dire need of a stool and bench combo. After a long day of eating mashed peas and carrots, sometimes he just needs to take a break. I saw this design a few months ago and thought that it would look great in walnut. I had a nice wide piece that I was setting aside for a special project like this – so off to work I went. The walnut has both heart- and sapwood, so there’s lots of contrasting colors and grain. The finish is a poly and oil blend. Baxter, my dog, tried to claim it first but I had to break his heart and give it to its rightful owner.
